However in Norway in the years 1910-1920 the Fred Hansen Company were quite proud of one of the first vehicles to be used in Stavanger.

In 1939 driver David Tiokasin was proud of his truck.

Now if I only knew which is David, the man in the cab or the one posing with the vehicle. On the basis that the photo was posed by the Department of the Interior Bureau of Indian Affairs I guess that the truck is a left-hand drive and David has got out of the cab to pose.
I struggled to find a truck in the Museum of Hartlepool's photo stream unless you count the back of a van in this York Road scene.

Mind you there are a couple of men on the corners of the street.
There was a major fire at Hartlepool in 1922 with much damage to the town; people lost their homes and most of their belongings. Many had to move.

It wasn't the horse and cart that caught my eye but rather that steam driven vehicle behind. (Again, thanks to the Museum of Hartlepool)
I haven't been to many places where cars and trucks are banned. However back in 2008 we spent our golden wedding anniversary (courtesy of our three children) on the island of Tresco in the Isles of Scilly. Transport round the island is provided inn trailers pulled by tractors; otherwise you have to walk unless you hire one of these.

Now it's a case of "Over and Out!" But before you go drive over to Sepia-saturday-160.
